Restaurant owner Tom Fearnes has loved his partner Cass for as long as he can remember, but their work often keeps them apart. When he meets a striking young man named Jake on the vibrant streets of Camden Town, their heady first encounter takes an unexpected turn.

Jake Thompson can hardly believe his luck when he wakes up in Tom’s bed. Tom is gorgeous, kind, and . . . taken. Tom’s explanation of his open relationship leaves Jake cold, but Tom is too tempting, and when hard times force Jake to accept Tom’s helping hand, he finds himself between two men who’ve lost their way.

Cass Pearson is a troubled soul. He loves Tom with all he has, but some days it feels like he hasn’t much to give. Jake seems like the perfect solution. Cass risks everything to push Jake and Tom together, but Jake resists, wary, until the darkness of Cass’s past comes to call. Then Jake finds himself the last man standing, and it’s time to dig deep and shine a light for the men he’s grown to love.


Tom, Cass, and Jake... what a trio. It's no secret I love menage. It's one of my all time favorite things to read. I have my reasons why, and it's not what you might think.

 This book did a fabulous job on the mental and emotional front of the whole menage relationship. Tom is such a pillar, a strength that holds up the weary, the broken. Cass is shattered, always on the brink of destruction. And Jake, he's so very lost, but he's also the one that lifts the fog.

 That gives Cass and Tom the missing piece to their puzzle. They make sense together. They are like one perfect circle. I loved Misfits and as a picky menage reader I give this 5 stars. I'd give it more if I could.

I have always said that if you don't have the psychological aspect of a story, it won't work. The connection must be believable.  I truly feel that Jake is the reason these three decide to settle down. He's so special and I absolutely adored him. I can't imagine how cruel the world has been to him and he gets a place in my pocket of protection.

Awesome story from a very talented author.
